The body of the Thunderbird IV features mahogany body wings and a solid, bolt-on hard maple neck for amazing sustain and tone, finished in a beautiful Vintage Sunburst. The slim-taper profile neck has a 34" scale length and a Pau Ferro fingerboard with a 12" radius and 20 medium jumbo nickel/silver alloy frets. The distinctive look of the Thunderbird IV is added to with black hardware, a vintage-style white pickguard and the classic Thunderbird logo.
The two ceramic TB-Plus pickups translate the solid mahogany body's natural resonance into a thunderous bass tone with excellent definition. The pickups are equipped with a three-way selector switch, neck and bridge volume controls and a master tone control, allowing you to shape your sound to suit your needs.
The instrument also features a three point fully adjustable bridge. This allows the string height to be adjusted in all directions (front, back and side-to-side), providing supreme control over the bass's action and intonation. This setup allows the bass to work with a variety of string types and gauges.
